Week 12 Rankings: Top 15 Kickers

Let’s continue our Week 12 rankings by looking at the best kickers in the league:

  1. Stephen Gostkowski – New England Patriots – at New York Jets
  2. Matt Bryant – Atlanta Falcons – at Tampa Bay
  3. Blair Walsh – Minnesota Vikings – at Chicago
  4. Shayne Graham – Houston Texans – at Detroit
  5. Jason Hanson – Detroit Lions – vs. Houston
  6. Lawrence Tynes – New York Giants – vs. Green Bay
  7. Sebastian Janikowski – Oakland Raiders – at Cincinnati
  8. Greg Zuerlein – St. Louis Rams – at Arizona
  9. Shaun Suisham – Pittsburgh Steelers – at Cleveland
  10. Justin Tucker – Baltimore Ravens – at San Diego
  11. Connor Barth – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – vs. Atlanta
  12. Matt Prater – Denver Broncos – at Kansas City
  13. Robbie Gould – Chicago Bears – vs. Minnesota
  14. Rob Bironas – Tennessee Titans – at Jacksonville
  15. Alex Henery – Philadelphia Eagles – vs. Carolina

Thoughts:

  • The Giants aren’t going to have the luxury of settling for field goals if they want to keep up with Green Bay.  Their inability short (Lawrence Tynes has hit 22 field goals of under 40 yards), is one of the reason’s Tynes’ is among the best kickers in the league this season.  While I would expect much better things from the offense coming out of the bye week, Tynes remains a good option in all formats.
  • It’s easy to imagine the Minnesota Vikings having to settle for field goals against the Bears, isn’t it?  Blair Walsh has been among the best kickers in the league as it is (23-of-24 on field goals this season) and could easily get ample opportunities this week.
  • Greg Zuerlein is one of two kickers to hit five field goals of 50+ yards this season (the other is Blair Walsh).  While the Rams may not give him quite as many opportunities as other kickers, his ability to hit from long range is always going to keep him as a potential option (much like Sebastian Janikowski).
